NetGalley Co-op

NetGalley is one of the largest digital ARC distribution sites in the industry. A huge advantage of listing your title on NetGalley’s platform is access to people you might not otherwise reach, from reviewers for major publications like USA Today and Publishers Weekly to librarians and booksellers looking for new titles to purchase.

I’ve been running a NetGalley co-op for over a decade, and mine is the longest-running co-op on NetGalley. Below is some basic information about what NetGalley is and how my co-op works. If you have additional questions not covered below or you’d like to join the co-op, please drop me an email.

Did you know… The co-op is available to all authors, publishers, and PR firms. You don’t have to be an editing client, though if you’re interested in editing, I’d love to hear from you.

Monthly Rental

  • $55.00 / month for e-book slots
  • $60.00 / month for audiobook slots

Yearly Lease

  • $500.00 per year. There’s a grace period for one quarter that I can prorate the fee. From September on, only monthly slots will be available. This can be used for either e-book or audiobook ARCs, though it’s one title per slot per month.

  • For monthly rentals: your slot will not be reserved until your invoice is paid. I recommend starting the signup process at least a week before you need a slot.
  • Marketing extras such as newsletters, category spotlights, etc. have a $25 administration fee in addition to the cost of the promotional opportunity. These optional promo slots are provided by NetGalley, I merely coordinate.
  • A nonrefundable 5% fee will be added if you want to use a credit card (as opposed to PayPal balance or eCheck via PayPal) or live outside the US. This applies to yearly leases, monthly rentals, and the add-on promo opportunities.
